Gene Starzenski Over the last twenty-five years, Gene Starzenski has served as a Medical Advisor and Medic on hundreds of television shows as well as 30 films, including Jaws2, Pearl Harbor, and Gone In 60 Seconds. He began his medical career in 1971 in Pittsburgh after serving as a decorated soldier and Military Police Officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. Raised in Pittsburgh by a Japanese mother and Polish father, Gene had intimate knowledge of the problems of being Bi-racial in the 1960's. After his service ended in 1970, he returned to Pittsburgh to work in private ambulance service. It was here that he first became aware of Freedom House. In 1972, Gene was hired by Southside Hospital as an Emergency Room Orderly. Later, he became an ER Technician, and along with a doctor, RN, and a nursing aid, would treat approximately 70 patients each shift. Due to the heavy work load in the Emergency Room Gene was given the opportunity to perform medical procedures outside his job category. Gene discovered that he was well suited and capable of handling Emergency procedures and wanted to do more. Gene contacted Freedom House, as it was the only paramedic program in Pittsburgh. Freedom House had no positions opened. Having knowledge about a paramedic-training program in California, Gene moved to California and in 1975 graduated from Daniel Freedom Paramedic Training and became certified by Los Angeles County as the 972nd Paramedic. A year later, while working at the Inglewood Fire Station #3, he met Julius Lafor, who was a firefighter and stuntman. He encouraged Gene to become a Studio Medic. Gene did so in 1977, going on to work on hundreds of television shows and films.

It tells a remarkable story set in an unlikely time and place, said creator Gene Starzenski, a South Side native who works as a Los Angeles paramedic.
...
Starzenski, 55, started interviewing Freedom House veterans in 1984 and began making the documentary in fall 2001. He is an ex-Marine military policeman who worked for ambulance services in Pittsburgh in the early '70s.
...
"No one had even heard of EMTs at the time, and (Freedom House responders) were already doing advanced life support," Starzenski said. "They were the pioneers."
It wasn't by design.
"This program started during the civil rights movement that was going to train African-American men to drive huckster trucks -- fresh fruit and vegetable trucks -- up through the Hill District," Starzenski said.
